i am supposed to be going to for my reversal in a few weeks and went for my preop x-rays and stuff where they do the barium enema to check the pouch and stuff. My surgeon called me last night and said that they noticed a small leak near the sutures. It is only 5 or 6 weeks since my original surgery and was wondering if this is somewhat common? i am very positive about things and I hope that this is not that big of a deal. Obviously the surgeon is not going to do the surgery with the leak. Anyway, thanks. Hope you all have a great weekend.

It's not common but it's not unheard of either.

dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998

1998 started prednisone, asacol, pentasa, nortriptylene, ativan, 6MP, rowasa enemas and suppositories, hydrocortisone enemas, tried the SCD diet, being a vegetarian, omega 3s, flax, pranic healing, yoga, acupuncture, probiotics

2000 lost all my B-12 stores and became anemic

2001 opted for j-pouch surgery- now living life med-free

My boyfriend recently had an ileostomy reverversal (he had severe UC)and he is having a heck of a time with 13 bathroom visits yesterday.
You sound as if you are doing fine now and I was wondering if you had any problems like this post surgery.
I am new to this board so please excuse if you have already answered this question.
